PROSPECT, Ky. — Norton Commons, the walkable mixed-use community in northeast Jefferson County, Monday shared how businesses are adjusting to the COVID pandemic.

“Norton Commons has over 70-plus businesses and the vast majority are independent and locally owned,” said Marilyn Osborn Patterson, marketing director and legal counsel for Norton Commons. “We hope that people throughout the Louisville region work to prioritize patronizing local establishments. It’s now more important than ever.”

Norton Commons polled businesses in the community on ways they are changing up their operations in the current environment. Below is an initial list of responses.

These are services Dogwood always offers, but in addition during this time, a technician can also come and pick up your pet and bring them to the hospital or deliver medications to the home.
